How to: Add Hexy Bottom Bag Pockets

IMG_8170The pockets for the Hexy Bottom Bag are not a part of the original design but as I worked through samples I thought it could be a fun and functional addition.  If you want to do the same, here’s how:

For each pocket, cut an outer pocket piece and a pocket lining piece. I made three pockets on mine, adding one to every other wedge side piece. The pocket lining is about 1/2″ longer than the outer pocket. This is exactly as it should be, don’t panic.

Align top edges and stitch, right sides together, with a quarter-inch seam.   Press seam toward lining. 

Press lining down, wrong sides together. Top stitch at edge of lining.     

Mark 1/4” seam allowance along bottom edge of pocket.

Line up seam allowance at corner, right sides together and stitch in place.   

Press pocket up into place and baste along both sides.  Continue with step 2 of Hexy Bottom Bag pattern.

Happy Sewing!
